It’s quite possibly the worst kept secret within the tight-knit ranks of tobacco-control, the research study conducted by Dr. David Hammond of the University of Waterloo, which purports to show a substantial increase in youth vaping in both Canada and the United States.
Numerous stakeholders including regulators, academics, tobacco-control activists and even the media have either seen the report or have been briefed on its findings; every one that is, except those in the vaping industry, harm reduction advocates and members of the public.
RegWatch has obtained a copy of the study and in this brief live streamed edition we are releasing it to the public so you may see the same data, findings, and conclusions being considered by regulators as they deliberate over the future of vaping in Canada and the U.S.
